Hello, you. 

I'm María. I cook a lot. It's my hobby, my love language, and I can cook pretty much anything. That's probably what brought you here, welcome! If you just happened across this page and want more background, click here

If you enjoy my content on InstagramYouTube and I hope you'll consider becoming a patron. That content will continue - and always be available for free -  but I'm sure you already know how much time, money, and effort goes into producing it. Also, it's hard work and it deserves compensation. 

I'm offering early recipe access, bonus content, exclusive merch, and other rewards for the generous souls that decide to support me here on Patreon. Depending on the Tier you select, you'll enjoy some oft-requested goodies: 

  • behind the scenes + bloopers: access to my Patreon Lens posts 
  • food blogger ideas + resources
  • content development tutorials: how I capture + edit my content
  • access to my live streams 
  • gift boxes delivered to your door
  • virtual cooking classes
  • live chats and Q&A's
  • One-on-One video chats + phone calls
  • bloopers + behind the scenes footage
  • and a whole lot more María: not-food content like more playlists, book + netflix recommendations, and any other randomness that tickles my fancy.

Each tier includes different benefits, so look each one over and decide which best suits you. 

Alright, so that's the gist of it! Hope to see you inside, but know that even if you cannot or do not subscribe to my Patreon, I'm glad you connected with my content and I hope you continue to enjoy it. 💛

Important: My spaces are decidedly leftist and safe for all identities. Stir the pot and get blocked. Same goes for sharing any of my Patreon content.
